Your daily dose of pretty: Max Shop Drape Merino Dress

Max have been around for years in New Zealand, and while I don't shop there now as often as I did back when I worked in one of them office things, I still find plenty of things in their stores to fall in love with. Like this merino dress:

Draping is obviously very in at the moment, and I have to say it's easily overdone. Seriously people, if your dress looks like it's missing a pelmet and a set of tie-backs then the draping has gone too far. This dress however has lovely simple lines, and I love the way they've managed to make the draping flow into the pockets.

  1. Very nice. The draping is beautiful.

  2. Ok, this answers our question "Who on earth would buy this stuff?" which we ask whenever we go into Max. They used to do some good stuff (ie things I would buy) but sadly no more.....

  3. Evadne: I do know what you mean, Max isn't the same as it was a few years ago, but occasionally they have some nice things. I've got a couple of really nice flattering short sleeve tees from them that I bought a couple of years ago and have had so much wear out of.
